The TruSlate system from GAF-ELK can make your dream of owning a genuine slate roof a reality.

On an old-fashioned slate roof, half of each slate is never seen, because it's tucked under the piece above it. GAF-ELK has replaced this wasted slate with high-tech waterproofing material.  With this ingenious design, the TruSlate system can be installed on almost any roof.

  • Real hand-split quarried slate (not a synthetic imitation)
  • An affordable luxury (often comparable to the cost of the cheap-looking imitations)
  • Perfect for new construction or remodeling
    (because it typically eliminates the expensive structural modifications that old-fashioned slate requires)
  • Improves your home's resale value (and may even help you to sell it more quickly)
